Yeah - the kicker is that you're going to have to order it directly from the publisher.

Here's the Website:

http://www.colszoo.org/internal/elasmo_2005/page1.htm

And here's the order form:

http://www.colszoo.org/internal/elasmo_200...al/EHM_Form.pdf

It's about $15 for the Manual on CD, or about $60 for the Book. These prices including shipping for the U.S. only.

If you would like I can pick one up for you and mail it out. I go to the Columbus zoo about 2 times a month. It is about 10 miles from work and I am a member there. Let me know and next time there I will get it.

WARNING: It's not an entertaining read, lol. My first year of studies I had to have an english disctionary as well as a Elasmo-Bio dictionary just to get through some of it and understand it, LOL. Now it's chill but at first I was like "Duuhh ok, the doodad is related to the thingamajigger that compounds the whatchamacallit". I'm a little better now. :)
